For Maya Tarrell's Senior Exit Project, Maya created a Story Walk! Story Walks encourage reading as well as physical activity. You will see a bunch of white boards around the elementary playground here at school. As you walk from board to board, you will be able to read a Halloween story! Feel free to check it out, but don’t wait too long, as the books and locations will continue to change! Maya would like to thank the Country Cardinals 4-H Club for sponsoring her project! Donations are still being accepted and greatly appreciated. Donations will be used to add more books. If anyone is interested in sponsoring this project, please contact Maya at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Highland students are excited to introduce a new business. The Cardinal Cafe was created by students and offers Highland staff the chance to order coffee, tea and other amazing drinks each Friday. Not only does the Cardinal Cafe provide an invaluable service to the Staff of Highland Community Schools it also gives students the opportunity to learn life skills. Before operations were underway, students had to calculate the cost of each individual item used to make one cup of coffee or tea. This information was used to assist in determining the price to charge their customers. Next, they had to organize their inventory and create an order form to help collect staff orders. The students send out an order form each week. On Fridays, the employees/business owners of the Cardinal Cafe are eager to come to school to brew and deliver the orders that have been placed. We think the staff members are just as thrilled to be served their hot and fresh cup of coffee as the students are to provide this valuable service.

Mr. Brad Van Epps visited Highland Middle and High School students to speak to them about the importance of reading. He began the day with a Book Talk, which he does every two weeks, from our library. He encouraged students around the CESA 3 area to pick up “little books” like the I Survived series, The Twits, and Charlie if they feel like “reading is just not [their] thing” but still want a fun and engaging book. For students looking for more challenging books with thrilling plots, Mr. Van Epps recommended renowned horror writer Stephen King (The Green Mile, The Stand), western and adventure writer Larry McMurty (Lonesome Dove), and epic fantasy writer George R. R. Martin (A Game of Thrones). Students from neighboring schools tuned in to hear the recommendations, as they do for every broadcast, but only Highland students got the benefit of one-on-one time with Mr. Van Epps for the rest of the day. You can read more about Mr. Van Epps visit in our upcoming newsletter.
